Filter out own people (by IP or name) from monitoring
We have a lot of people in our company that use the website while building new features. I see all of these on the monitoring board which is noise when I want to see the real visitors.
I'd like to filter them out.
I'd suggest to filter them out either
- by using the IP address (which is proably the easiest)
- by name (everyone needs to enter a name and then I add them to a group 'own people' and then they are filtered out)
Thank you for the suggestion.
Currently the only way is to ban by IP, but in this case the widget won’t appear for that user as well.
To ban by IP, please go to Admin – Ban List – click Ban IP button.

As google analytics do.
Ability to ignore site visits from staff/agents or workplace when one front end.
Settings / ignore IP

This is a good idea we use your chat in our web site http://informatica.globalsistemi.com/ and It could be useful to have a feature to remove internal IP
Please come up with this feature. It will be of great use to us. It is really confusing to see our own IP address, send messages on it thinking it is a new visitor and finding out that it is me whom I am sending it to :(
agents should have an easy way in the dashboard to activate/de-activate their own IP address or any IP address to prevent triggers from occuring when their staff is viewing or working on their own site
When we visited our own website than i see myself as a visitor.
Tawk can not filter my own IPadres so that i don't see my own visit.
Is it possible to make a filter option where i can give in my own ooutside IPadres.

Filter people from the 'Monitoring' Tab, for example, my forum manager, so that the monitoring tab does not show him, filtered out by IP

+25!! This is a must. We often are on our own site and this is imperative for us to be able to focus on actual clients.

I often visit my own site and would like an option to prevent myself from counting as a site visitor. This helps prevent "padded" visitor stats. Also, would like for me to be hidden from the "monitoring" section so I am not always on the monitoring section. This way, our support team can focus on ACTUAL clients.
I want my office colleagues to see the widget and whether it is active etc, but I don't want to include them in the list of visitors for monitoring etc.
this is a good idea

Banning your IP is rather over the top and not intuitive. Would be better to have a separate function in the admin section.
Need to provide an option to block local traffic showing in monitoring section with the IP address.
I would like to hide an specific IP from agent monitoring window, but stay showing the widget for user.
This is useful to hide my own fixed IP on the agent monitoring window and maintain all website functionality for service check reasons.
Right now, you could always "ban" your IP addresses from the chat so they dont appear anymore.

That works for fixed IP, including dynamic hostnames should be possible
This can be done via Triggers :)
Be useful to add a list of IPs not to track. SO for example you add your office IP so staff don't show up in the visitor list etc.
Anyone else want this feature? Just that the daily figures are distorted by our own staff or developers staff when working on the site....or are we doing something incorrect?
